Elizabeth Resnick of Fletcher & Company 

Since graduating from Brown University with a B.A. in Middle East Studies, Elizabeth has worked in a broad range of fields, including international development, farming, food photography, health & wellness media, and immigration law. She grew up in Western Massachusetts and lived in Tunisia before moving to New York City.

What she is seeking: "I seek out books that teach me something about a place, era, person, phenomenon, or relationship and that reveal truths about who we are as humans, how we interact with the world around us, and how we can improve. In nonfiction, these qualities appeal to me in books about food, travel, health & wellness, popular science/psychology, and Big Ideas. I also have a particular weakness for cookbooks. In fiction, I appreciate deeply researched historical settings—or invented places that are so vividly depicted that they could be real—and characters who linger in my mind long after I’ve finished reading."

How to submit: To query, please send a letter, brief synopsis. and the first 5-10 pages of the manuscript/proposal pasted into the body of the email to info@fletcherandco.com. Please do not include email attachments with your initial query, as they will be deleted. Average response time is 4-6 weeks, so please do not follow up any sooner than that.
